The need to preempt Iran and export gas to Egypt was the reason the government gave to push through its controversial plan for Israel's natural gas. Now, this reason may no longer exist.08:52 31.08.15 | 1 comments
U don't know what ur talking about. Israel accepted the UN parttion plan back in 1948, but none of the Arabs did. ON the contrary, the Arabs waged war against Israel time after time so as to destroy the Jewish state. As a matter of fact Israel occupies the west bank because of its victory over the attacking Arabs states in 1967. Only since then have the Palestinians evolved a "national consciousness" which btw, they never had prior to '67( they saw themselves as part of trans Jordan !) The reason they still don't haver a tat is not because of Israel, but because of their intransience at recognizing the fact that the Jews have a right to a state. Foe them history begins in the year 700 when the Moslems invaded all the middle east & north africa. They conveniently forget the historic facts of who lived here for 2000 year before them. That's right for 2000 years ! from the time of king David c.960BC - the roman destruction of Jslm in 70 AD. Whatsmore the Palestinians have the nerve to demand not only a state but a right to return refugees to Israel itself. Great idea!!! 2 staes for 1 people . Nverevin recorded history has anything like that been suggested or ever implemented. People like u are naive and are unwittingly paving the way for the muslims to demand a return of Spain, Sicily, Rumanins to Muslim hegemony. Time will tell who was right.
